I was very excited to learn this weekend that I’d been accepted into the 2015 Viable Paradise workshop! This is an annual workshop for science fiction writers taught by published authors in the genre. This year’s instructors include Elizabeth Bear, Steven Brust, Morgan J. Locke, and several others.
I was accepted into the workshop on the strength of the first few chapters of Martian Born, and it’s those chapters I’ll mostly be working on while I’m there. We’ll be staying in Martha’s Vineyard in mid-October, so I hope the weather is beautiful!
This is a very important step for me, as I try to branch out into the mainstream science fiction genre, and I can barely contain myself right now!
